'This paper is an analysis of the characters in Patrick Whites' A Fringe of Leaves. Bansal states :
'This paper seeks to unravel Ennen's consistent formulation and reformulation of her identities from her childhood to her stay with the Aboriginals and later with Jack Chance, an escaped convict. It further shows how the novelist's concern with history is not fetishized or partisan but an impartial one where a character plunges into both the worlds and leaves it to the readers to find out which one is more humane. It would further explore the issues of belongingness and nostalgia in terms of Ellen Roxburgh's shifts in locale.' (130)
